Anna Nicole Smith gave birth to a baby girl in the Bahamas three days before her son, Daniel Smith, 20, suddenly died.
Posted on Anna Nicole's website was a statement that read, "On Sept. 7 Anna Nicole gave birth to a healthy 6 lb., 9 oz. baby girl. Her son Daniel was in the Bahamas with her to share in the joy of his baby sister when he passed away suddenly on the morning of Sept. 10. "We have yet to learn the cause of death but do not believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor. Anna Nicole is absolutely devastated by the loss of her son. He was her pride and joy and an amazing human being. Please do not make any press inquiries at this time so that Anna Nicole can grieve in peace."
The father of Smith's new baby is believed to be her recent ex-boyfriend, Larry Birkhead.
The death of Anna's son continues to be a mystery. Reginald Ferguson of the Royal Bahamas Police Force told reporters, "The deceased, who had been visiting in the hospital, was supposedly asleep in the chair in the room and didn't seem to wake up. It would appear from our report that the mother had gotten up, saw him in the chair and he appeared to be sound asleep. She tried to wake him up, he was unresponsive and she sounded the alarm. … Doctors were called to check him and he was subsequently pronounced dead. We are waiting the report from the pathologist to help us conclude what the cause of death was."
